Love on the Red Line



I heard two young lovers sitting behind me on
an afternoon train ride on the red line

Train passed the underground tunnel
Their reflection in glass window bounced in my eyes
Young lovers lost in each other's arms
on an afternoon train ride on the red line

They kissed hurriedly as young lovers often do
They giggled at coded private jokes
They repeated every time train driver's muffled
voice called the next station name out loud

To all young lovers in all the afternoon
trains on all the colored lines
I make a silent wish : I don't know your station
or if you will be sharing a train ride 20 years from now
But enjoy this journey while it lasts
and many more to come till your very last stop
